Frozen Mojito (Frojito)

Love mojitos?!

Grab your blender and let’s make some frojitos! ♡♡♡

They’re made with all of the same fresh mint, lime juice, rum and honey (my preferred sweetener) that goes into a classic mojito recipe.  But in lieu of topping your drink off with club soda, just add in a handful of ice instead.  Then toss everything in the blender, puree until the drink is nice and slushie-ish, and voila — a round of refreshing frozen mojitos can be yours to enjoy for happy hour in less than 5 minutes!

Perfect for summertime happy hours and grill-outs and pool days, perfect for using up that overflowing fresh mint in your garden, and perfect for any day that you’re craving an extra-minty mojito.

Cheers, friends!  Let’s make some frojitos!

Frozen Mojito Ingredients

Frozen Mojito Ingredients:

To make these frozen mojitos, you will need:

  • Fresh mint leaves: Some for the mojito itself, plus extra for garnish if you would like.
  • Rum: Mojitos are typically made with white rum, but feel free to use whatever kind you prefer.
  • Lime juice: Freshly-squeezed, please.
  • Honey simple syrup: I prefer to make my simple syrup naturally sweetened with honey (see instructions below).  But you can always use traditional simple syrup (made with granulated sugar) if you prefer.
  • Ice: Just add however much is needed to get that nice fine slushie consistency.
